Evil Eyes

San Francisco trio Evil Eyes are back with a new EP titled ii, their latest release since last year’s Borderlines LP.

In line with the style on their previous albums, ii combines dreamy California power pop with the band’s Nashville roots. The album’s opening track “Johnny Said” paves the landscape with a touch of Nashville twang that stretches over a tight guitar and synth melody. Somewhere in between rustic folk-pop and ‘80s era Fleetwood Mac, the new EP is perfect for 20 minutes of a late summer drive, if you can manage to find a highway desolate enough.
